Rabbi Yaakov Kleiman will be coming to Moshav Mevo Modi’im on Wednesday, January 8 at 7:30pm. He will be talking to us about
The DNA Connection – Modern Jews and the Ancient Hebrew
The presentation demonstrates that science and tradition can complement and need not conflict. Of particular interest for Kohanim, however, the DNA research relates to all the Jewish people.
- Discovery and significance of the ‘Cohen-Gene’
- DNA conformation of the Middle-Eastern origin of the Jewish Diaspora
- Tracing the Biblical Mothers’ lineages
- ‘Lost Tribes’- Found?
Program is an approximately 60 minute presentation, followed by questions,
flexible to the situation and group. Rabbi Kleiman can be reached at (972-2) 626-0632 for more information.
